Two years into his NFL career, Micah Parsons is already one of the league’s biggest superstar.
The Dallas Cowboys selected Parsons with the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and the Penn State product quickly repaid their belief in him.
Parsons dominated as rookie, racking up 84 tackles, 13 sacks and three forced fumbles while playing a hybrid linebacker/defensive end role.
He showed no signs of slowing down in year two, either. The Cowboys star recorded 65 tackles, 13.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in year two. He finished as the runner-up to San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa as the league’s defensive player of the year.
Beyond his play, Parsons’ outgoing personality has also earned him legions of fans. Parsons is active on social media. He’s not afraid to speak his mind, and he does a significant amount of charity work.
Prior to the Super Bowl in Phoenix on Sunday, he sat down with Bryant McFadden of the All Things Covered podcast and discussed a wide variety of topics.

Parsons revealed a number of things. He said that Cam Newton was his favorite player growing up. He named Bucs running back Leonard Fournette as the league’s best running back, and he said that “Hips Don’t Lie” by Shakira was the most embarrassing song on his playlist.
(Ed Note: Hips Don’t Lie is a banger and not at all embarrassing.)
But nobody, even McFadden, was prepared for what came next.
McFadden asked Parsons for the weirdest thing about him that few people know.
Now, most people would reveal something mildly weird like how they enjoy drinking pickle juice or that they sleep with a night light.
Not Parsons. He went above and beyond.

Apparently that sort of thing is commonplace in NFL circles. You do you, big man.
